I use my actual ipaddress in the command.
I have just started my first droplet with Joomla, to host my personal portfolio. However, I am trying to log in to my droplet from my terminal on my Mac with my SSH key. I command ssh root@your
ip_address, yet it’s unresponsive so I can’t log in.
What do I do?

It would time out. I had to click on “console access” from my control panel on Digital Ocean, for it to work. I’m in now.
